Mansoor Recalls Having Heat With The WWE Locker Room
Mansoor details having heat in WWE
Mansoor found himself with heat in the WWE locker room for his first match in Saudi Arabia at Super Showdown 2019.
Mansoor was scheduled to be in the 51-man Battle Royal at the event, a match he would win, but he ended up with heat before the match as he didn't introduce himself and shake hands with his fellow wrestlers.
Mansoor revealed on a Twitch stream:
"All 51 people in the Battle Royal are in a big room... And Jamie Noble is going over the match and Heath Slater keeps shouting, 'Okay, but who's winning?' And Jamie's like, 'Hold on' and then finally, Heath's like, 'Who's winning the damn thing?' And Jamie's like, 'The NXT kid's winning, okay!?' And everybody turns to me and looks at me. I'm like, 'Uh,' so I go hide in a separate locker (room) because when I did my tryout, we went to that same venue and they had us go to a storage closet.
"So I went to the same storage closet and I remember (Mustafa) Ali pulled me aside and said, 'Hey dude, you got heat man.' I was like, 'What? What happened?' He goes, 'You didn't say hi to anybody, you didn’t introduce yourself, you didn't shake anybody’s hand...' Yeah, I did (think I had heat with Kofi Kingston). I was really, really sad about that. I was like, 'Oh my God. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do that at all. I just thought that that's not what you do here.' He's like, 'Of course it is. Were you not told that?...' And this is before our run by the way so this was my first time ever talking to Ali and funnily enough, he was like, 'Yeah, Claudio said that he was p*ssed.' I was like, 'F*ck! No!' Because I'm a huge Cesaro fan and I would end up working him, obviously, later. So, I made sure, in the Battle Royal - well funny, in the Battle Royal, I was standing around and I was next to Luke Gallows and I said, 'Hey, I know this is probably a weird time to say this but I'm a huge Talk'n Shop fan' and he was like, 'Pretty cool.' Anyway, afterwards, I shake everyone's hand, I say, 'Thank you, thank you very much,' introduce myself to everybody."
Nature then called for Ali and he revealed he ended up taking a massive dump in Shane McMahon's toilet.
"Finally, I had to take a huge sh*t, and so I go to the bathroom that I went to when I went there for my tryout. When I was there for my tryout, right across from the storage closet was a separate locker room with three stalls. So I go in that room and I go into the stalls, take a nasty sh*t, just nasty. So I flush it, come on out, start washing my hands. All of a sudden I hear, 'Hey man' and I turn to my right and it's Shane McMahon and I say, 'Oh hi,' and I wanna shake his hand but my hands are wet. I pull out the paper and I dry off and throw it away and as I'm walking out, he goes, 'I'm Shane' and I go, 'Oh! I'm Mansoor, sorry.' I elbow bump him and he just nods his head and I leave... That was before the match, the match happens and then Shane's in Gorilla about to (win) his 'Best in the World' trophy and he looks at me and he says, 'Hey man, that was a really good promo.' I was like, 'Thanks Shane' and I have to take a p*ss so I go back to that bathroom and now there's a paper next to that door that says, 'Shane McMahon, private locker room.' So, I took a sh*t in Shane's bathroom... I honestly think he thought I was like a janitor or something (he laughed)," Mansoor added.
Mansoor remained with WWE until September 21, 2023, when he was released by the promotion as part of post-UFC merger cuts. More than 20 talents were let go altogether.
